The DNS resolver does not work. First, the symlinks
/lib/libnss_{files,dns}.so.2 are missing, only the
libnss_{files,dns}-2.14.1.so are there.

If I create the right symlinks, the resolver seems to do something, but
times out. Using an IP address works fine. I don't know what's wrong
with the resolver, I might have a look later.

I inserted an IP address instead of a name for the moment, you can try
netbooting by running
 qemu -m 1G -kernel gpxe.lkrn [1]
Download takes a while, but the image boots up fine.
